Jumping At Shadows

Post  Liv on Tue Jul 24, 2012 10:19 pm

Free. The land rises up to catch me. Free land.
But the damn hands are still digging into me.
Swift and slick, I change my shape, and slip out with a wriggle. No one can hold the river's daughter. Standing, taking two feet again, I draw my blade. "Demon, get ye hence."
She stares at me, terror in her eyes. Behind her, the river churns.
The River. My River.
So. Fear was great enough that I sought safety and freedom, and it brought me home. I glance about, and spot the rent in the air. "Liam! Sori! Jump through!"
A moment later, they come barreling through like a pair of human spears, and I seal the Gate behind them.
Panting, we stand together on the River's bank. I shake my head. "You'd think we could run an errand without such fuss."

through the rent and into the water, thankfully it washes the foul icor from me, sloshing to the edge, and fully aware i look like a drowned rat, I smirk at liv, "If we could do a damn thing without it being overly complicated i would die of a heart attack and come back as a badger." I i find myself falling back into the water, odd how comforting it is when i was so scared of this place before, it takes a moment before I realize we aren't the only ones who came through. With that thought i am back up on my feet the spear uncoiling from my arm and leveled at the succubus "but why is she here?"

"Go Ye hence where!?". Terror was etched in her face as she looked to the daughter of the river. "I.... I've never been here... I... ". She lost her words we she looked to the tip of the blade. "I did not harm you before..."

"Because I could shuck her no way shy of this and a shapeshift." I state, staring at the creature in annoyance. "Even then she tried to hold me by the tail." I spit on the earth, trying to clear my mouth. Demon blood tastes foul. "And you did harm, demon spawn. You took from me. That I did not appreciate."

"Sori, it's a demon." I state coldly. "I have no taste for degenerate children of God."

i look at her "in the old religion i would be considered something akin to a half demon myself and lets not forget this is the nightside not really a place where you can judge people by their labels".

"Sori," I turn from the creature. "Demons are the tools of the God to punish those under His dominion. They are pawns of His laws. I am not under His laws, and I find His jailers and tools rather distasteful, to be frank. You may be right-though your kind are closer to mine than to that girl- but she is not one we want to walk with." I glance at the creature. "Go on. Go home. Shoo."

"Liv" I tilt my head setting the spear back to my arm "that last part was a bit of overkill, weather by accident or not we still brought her here, and i don't know that she can just 'go home' as you put it" i quirk an eyebrow then i look at the demon "don't mistake my actions as any form of affection, simple fact, and I dislike being responsible for anothers misfortune"

She tried to look angry as she stared at them all but her eyes showed her fear. She knew nothing of this outside world and wanted nothing more than to go back to her abusive home. "I cannot return as I do not know the way.". She was hesitant a moment. "I have never been outside my home..."

I frowned. "You're a demon. You can walk paths in worlds. So walk home. I will not be responsible for a demon." Glancing about, I sigh. "And my holt is going to hate this. Deeply"

I turn away, ears perking at the sound of my holt, not far down river. "Do as you will. My family will allow her...for a short time. Come."
There's yips and barks as we're spotted coming down the bank, calls and smiles, and my name being called and tossed from mouth to mouth.
"Liv! Liv!"
I'm wrapped in arms and slapped on the back, grins and laughter all around.
It's been a long time since I was home.

She stood slowly as she watched the family of the Ard Ri come and embrace her. This was nothing like what she had been told of the outside world. Her mother, and caretakers, had been clear that no one would see to her outside of the establishment. That they, and only they, would provide for her. Yet here, here was a group of people obviously not eager to kill her.

Aruna's tail curled and uncurled behind her nervously as she watched the family gathering. Something deep inside her tugged and she brushed it aside. She was a succubus. Succubus' do not need a family. Succubus' ate whole families. Why then did watching this make her yearn for it?

Anger and frustration blossomed in her at her own emotions as she wrapped her arms around herself. Damn her human father and his ability to actually breed with a succubus; whoever he was.

"Clearly." She scoffed despite herself as she looked to Sori. "I do not know how I'll be received for leaving and I cannot return on my own. You wouldn't happen to have a spare would you?" She motioned her head to the cigarette. She didn't really need it but it would feel nice to feel fire in her chest for now.

Taking out a new cigarette, she leaned in and lit it up off of Sori's. Taking a long draw, she held it; relishing the feeling. With a slow release, she sighed happily. "These are a good brand. Old fashioned, but good."

"If they did, I don't care. I've had worse things than bull semen in me." She took another long draw of the cig as it help to calm the nagging yearn of having a family.

She smirked and chuckled lightly as she took another long draw. "Well enough. These actually taste pretty good." She smiled at her as her tail moved over and wrapped around Sori's free wrist. "You wouldn't happen to know good place where a girl could rest would you?" She wasn't hungry per say but a little snacking never hurt anyone.
